Picking the right hospital for your child

2 mn read

A sick child is a constant source of worry for parents. Sometimes, conditions might make it imperative to admit the child to a hospital. In such scenarios, parents need to pick the right kind of hospital that will take maximum care of their baby. Even though there is no dearth of hospitals in the country, choosing the best child hospital in hyderabad can seem like an uphill task. In India, the number of child care units is growing at a rapid rate with everything from trained doctors and nurses to neonatologists and paediatricians. Most of these staff are trained and have sufficient experience in the field. 

But if you need to pick one for your child, here are some tips that can make the selection process easier for you. 

  • Make a list of the hospitals that you considered worth admitting your child. Ensure that they possess a dedicated paediatric wing and neonatal care unit if your child is an infant. 

  • Most hospitals have a website these days. Therefore, it makes sense to check out the list of doctors available with them. If you just want to get your child checked by a doctor then there will be a list of OPD doctors and the timings when they are available. 

  • Consider the general reputation of the hospital. Word of mouth can be of great help in choosing the right hospital. Speak to your friends and relatives before you actually head for the hospital. Different people face different experiences and it pays to speak to them about your problem. Online reviews can be of great help also. 

  • The website should also contain a list of the facilities available at the hospital. Ideally, a good hospital should have all the modern equipment, laboratory and machinery for check-up and surgery.

  • Ensure that it also has a neurology department for children along with experienced doctors. In case the tests related to the child’s problems are carried out in the hospital itself then it should have proper laboratories. Most of the treatment will be carried out on the basis of the reports from these tests. Therefore, it is imperative that the laboratories have the accepted standard.

  • The child hospital in Hyderabad should have all the departments available in other hospitals as well like ophthalmology, cardiology, urology, endocrinology as well as orthopaedics. A child can be affected by any disease so it is best to shortlist hospitals that have all the facilities.

  • In case the child needs to be admitted then it should have an in-patient department as well with proper beds and cabins. Cleanliness inside the hospital is a must for the health of all patients. So, ensure that the insides of the cabins and general departments are cleaned and sanitised from time to time. 

  • The hospital should also have a good nutritionist because the knowledge of proper nutrition is often unavailable among parents. Malnutrition is one of the major problems in the country even now. In many cases, children need proper nutrition and psychological treatment to become healthy.          

Conclusion: Once you have selected the right hospital for your child ensure that all the prescription and test reports are handy before starting off.
